Episode #9 is a new video discussion with Dr. Bahri, the “World’s First Lean Dentist” (see also Video Podcast #5). Today we talk about lessons he has learned from touring factories and why focusing on single piece flow is a key to true Lean success, even for a dentist’s office.
Update Oct 2010: There is a problem with the video, so please re-direct yourself to the audio version of the podcast: LeanBlog Podcast episode #82.
His book, Follow the Learner, is available from the Lean Enterprise Institute. You can also watch an archived webinar that he presented (archive here), along with some text Q&A follow ups that were recently posted.
This is the same discussion as the audio LeanBlog Podcast episode #82.
